Prostitution in Nigeria is illegal in all Northern States that practice the Islamic penal code(Sharia) therefore, the penalty is death.
For Southern Nigeria, the activities of pimps or madams, underage prostitution, and the operation or ownership of brothels are penalized under sections 223, 224, and 225 of the Nigerian Criminal Code.
